A rethinking on the Chinese market began in 2014, followed by the Indian market in 2017. More stringent regulations on greenhouse gas emissions led to a need for efficient SCR (selective catalytic reduction) catalysts for diesel engines.
Cleaner shipping as a further cornerstone of success
IBIDEN Porzellanfabrik has witnessed a similar development in shipping. Rules laid down by the International Maritime Organization stipulates binding adherence to nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in selected coastal protected areas for new ships. Leading producers of large engines have been relying on the exhaust gas cleaning expertise from Styria in the form of SCR catalysts for several years as a means of complying with stipulated threshold values.
